Robert Greenwood and Dana Luebke founded Sun.Ergos in Calgary in 1977, and in the following years became Alberta’s foremost international touring company of theatre and dance. They have represented Alberta and Canada around the world, performing and teaching in 22 countries. Special among the awards they have received from Canada, the U.K., the United States, Poland, Croatia, Mexico and Iran is the Redom Danice Hrvatska s Likom Marka Marulica – Croatia’s highest cultural award – presented to them in 2004 by the President of Croatia.
Sun.Ergos’ mandate has always been to celebrate the differences and recognize the similarities among peoples and cultures in order to witness our human foibles, our joys, our triumphs and our challenges. Theatre critic Louis Hobson wrote of Sun.Ergos, “Truly unique…Sun.Ergos soars above most of what passes for originality in Calgary, and for that reason it deserves our attention, respect and support.”
